clipclop1023 : I got to do it both ways! My original engagement ring (which was then either lost or stolen) was purchased preset. For my replacement ring, I bought the stone and setting separately and had a third jeweler set the stone for me. I wouldn’t do that again in a hurry, that involved lots of emails and travel time! 

If I have to do it again, and I hope I don’t, I would find a jeweler who would source my stone for me and place it in their setting. Then I’d get the best of both worlds of convenience and customization!

We got the stone from James Allen and loved the experience. If you go with them, ask for the pricescope discount. 

We had the stone set at a local jeweler, i knew I wanted an ArtCarved setting so picked the cheapest jeweler who carried their settings. Huge mistake, they did a terrible terrible job with the setting and it had to be replaced by ArtCarved and set at a new jeweler. It was a nightmare
